Desert Rose

The Desert Rose resembles a bonsai without all the detailed care. It has a thick, swollen trunk that can hold water during times of drought and shiny dark green leaves. But the real appeal comes from its showy, trumpet-shaped flowers that appear in shades of pink, white, purple, and red. Desert Rose is a sun-loving plant, so grow it in the brightest spot you have. It's a perfect companion plant for cacti and other succulents. However, because it is a tropical plant, it cannot survive frost conditions. Note: Desert Rose is not meant for human or animal consumption. All parts of this plant are considered poisonous so keep that in mind when planting in areas of easy accessibility to curious pets and children.

Maui Yellow Ixora

This truly tropical evergreen shrub is relatively compact. It can be used as a landscape plant in frost-free zones and as container specimens in cooler climates. Where hardy, it is ideal for hedges, borders, and foundation plantings. Mauis prefer full sun to part shade, particularly in the hottest part of the day with sunlight bringing out vibrant colors and more prolific blooming. Its soil must be well-drained and on the acid side. Covered with large, leathery, dark green leaves, it will produce many round flower clusters comprised of lots of four-petaled blooms with long floral tubes. The brightly colored flowers are sunny orangish yellow. They are pollinated by butterflies and followed by hard, fleshy berry-like (non-edible) fruits.

Mandevilla 'Sun Parasol Giant Pink'

The Mandevilla Sun Parasol Giant Pink is an eye-catching tropical that produces large pink tubular flowers on a twining vine. The dark green foliage is resistant to humidity, pests and disease. It blooms from early summer through the first frost. Growth requirements include partial to full sun and regular watering. Our Mandevilla Sun Parasol Giant Pink comes in 2 gallon pots and can grow to be 10 feet tall at maturity with a spread of up to 24 inches.

Red Powder Puff Calliandra

Native to Bolivia, Red Powder Puff is an evergreen shrub or small tree. When the bipinnately compound leaves open, they are a copper-pink but mature to a dark green. Raspberry-like flower buds open to round red powder puff flowers, consisting of masses of scarlet stamens. It blooms primarily in the fall and winter, however it has been known to bloom sporadically throughout the year. They are great for attracting butterflies and hummingbirds, and are a great tropical plant to add color and year round foliage to any landscape. Height 3-6 Feet Width 2-3 Feet Soil Moist Sun Full

Mexican Flame Vine

Mexican Flame Vine is a fast growing, heat loving plant that features attractive evergreen foliage. The small clusters of brilliant orange, daisy-like blooms contrast well with the dark green leaves. Although the blooms peak in spring and summer, the vine often produces blooms throughout the year. Mexican Flame Vine is great for adding color to an unsightly fence or to crawl up a trellis. The scientific name, senecio confusus, translates to “confused old man” referring to its growth habit when not supported. Without something to crawl up on this vine will grow this way and that in a confusion of stems that pile up over time and eventually it looks like a sprawling shrub.
